Do I have to seal VIVID™ Acid Stain?

Absolutely. Doing so will ensure the stain will last and remain on your substrate. If the stain is not sealed it may be tracked throughout the commercial/residential space, wash and wear away etc. If a natural rustic finish is preferred, use a water based or other matte finish sealer. We recommend Superseal™ 20WB or one of our solvent acrylics with the matte agent added.
